    Default moodle versions and updates

    Hello,

    There is 3 versions of moodle on moodle.org: 1.9.14,2.0.5 and 2.1.2

    From the education repo 1.9.13 and 2.0.2 are available.

    Those versions are affected by these security issues :
    -MSA-11-0038: Database injection protection strengthened
    -MSA-11-0039: Wiki section vulnerability
    Which are describe as serious (Moodle.org: Security news)

    Is there a plan to provide an update soon? Shall we better not use education repo for installing moodle?

    Thank you for your advice.

    You're actually better off installing Moodle from CVS from moodle.org, then you can update anytime.

    PS: We are not devs and it's not certain that the packager hangs around these forums.

    I'll do that and delete the education repo from my server so I can be certain no compromise software could be install on my system.

    Thank you.

    In such cases, just find out the one who is currently maintaining the package:
    rpm -q --changelog moodle1 | less
    => have a look at the mentioned Email addresses...
    And write her/him an Email requesting an update. You can also open a bug at https://bugzilla.novell.com/ about the issue.

    This works much faster than asking here in the Forum, where packagers normally are not available.

    OK thank for the tip I was wondering where I could find this information.
    I'll definitively send him a mail about that issue.

    looking at the repos, it looks to me like the problem is fixed. So as result: trying to find the "right" channel is never easy - but at least for reaching packagers someone should better try to reach them via direct Email, opensuse-edu@opensuse.org mailinglist or (maybe) the #opensuse-edu channel on irc.freenode.net

    Indeed!
    I got an answer the same day I send direct email to packager.
    Thanks again.
